    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    This study tries to situate Andreas Gryphius’s political tragedies in the context of contemporary theories of law and government. In his dramatic engagement with the raison d’état and natural law, Gryphius expressed his personal views about issues of sovereignty and the right of resistance, which differed from the ideas of his contemporaries and led to a uniquely Gryphian form of political theology.

    Reviews

    "Oliver Bachs materialreicher und scharfsinniger Studie zur politischen Theologie im Werk des Schlesiers gelingt es nun auf imponierende Weise, Gryphius als poeta doctus in eine Reihe mit literarischen Größen wie Miguel de Cervantes zu stellen."
    Franz Fromholzer in: Arbitrium 36/2 (2018), 197-200
